U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords reads the final chapter of her book in the audio version, set to be released the same day as the book on Nov. 15.

“Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope” is written by the 41-year-old congresswoman and her 47-year-old husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly.

Kelly reads the book aloud in the audio version with his wife reading the last chapter, according to an image on and confirmed by Giffords’ Tucson office Wednesday.

Giffords was shot clear through the left side of the head while meeting with constituents in Tucson Jan. 8. Six people were killed and 13 were wounded in the shooting rampage.

The third term Arizona congresswoman has slowly emerged as her recovery from the near-fatal brain injury continues. Her office released a photo of her in June. In August she appeared in Washington to vote on the debt-ceiling bill and earlier this month she attended her husband’s military retirement ceremony, also in Washington.

Giffords and her husband are expected to be featured in an ABC special with Diane Sawyer on Nov. 14, the day before the book’s release.
